Stamping feels kind of forced today, but I managed to squeeze out another Christmas card. This layout is loosely based on one of the cards from the latest issue of Holiday Cards. I love that magazine and look forward to getting it every year. Thanks for looking today!

So I Googled when the next issue of the Holiday Cards magazine would be out. (on news stands 9/14 btw) That led me to the Paper Crafts connections blog. There I saw a really nice card that inspired me to make this Christmas card. I used the Sizzix holly embossing folder and chalked the leaves and berries. Then I used my handy dandy holly die cut and decided it needed some texture. Can you guess which embossing folder I used for the leaves? Excuse me while I pat myself on the back for this one. I'm sure I'm not the first to do this, but I did think of it all on my own. Hopefully this will kick-start my Christmas mojo!
I'm not really feelin' the stamping love lately. I was in the mood to stamp and this was the best I could do. It's not even a very good picture, but I figured my blog needed an update. I think I have a pretty good stash of Halloween cards and I need to move on to Christmas, but I'm inspiration-less lately. What I need is a new magazine. I'm patiently waiting for the Holiday Cards mag to come out. That always jump starts my stamping juices.
I hope you all have a great day and thanks for looking.

Here's another fabulous image from TAC's Just Ducky set. Sometimes I just can't handle the cuteness of it all! The paper is from DCWV's Nana's Kitchen. If I was going to re-do this card I would have removed the yellow piece and just stamp the sentiment in it's place.
I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend and thanks for looking.
